3rd year undrafted defenseman Mark Cundari(15) was a key component in a trade deadline deal that saw him move from St. Louis Blues‘ system to Calgary Flames.
He was chosen to appear in the 2013 AHL All-Star Game, where he had one assist to help the Western Conference to a 7-6 win, in what has been his breakout campaign.
He’s appeared in 172 minor league contests scoring 10 goals and 59 assists, all with Peoria Rivermen.
The under-sized 5’9″ but solid as a rock, 200 lbs. agitator defenseman has yet to make his NHL debut but could net a recall from farm team, Abbotsford Heat before the current season wraps up.
He won back-to-back OHL and Memorial Cup titles in juniors with Windsor Spitfires.
The soon-to-be 23 year old is in the final season of his 3-year entry level deal and scheduled to become a restricted free agent as the end of 2012/2013.
As the Flames are rebuilding a more youthful future, he will undoubtedly be qualified with a contract extension.
